The band commented on their new offering: 
"The title ‘Ode To The Flame’ is chosen in tradition of the debut record, ‘Death By Burning’ to maintain the cleansing power of fire as the key theme. Fire is able to reset anything and will erase this planet one day from any plague that's been around. Furthermore it's obviously an ode to passion and iron will. ‘Ode To The Flame’ isn't dramatic, it's drastic. By all means."

Ever since their inception in 2013 and the release of their first album in 2014 the band has been recognised as one of the hardest working in the German extreme metal underground. Melding the most sinister elements of styles like black metal, doom and punk, representing unfiltered pure primal rage, MANTAR have proven to be one of a kind. Their extremely intense live shows have been seen all over the world and have blown away unaware audiences with their unconditionally tight and brutal performances. MANTAR is a pure evil elemental force captured by only two ├╝ber passionate artists that strive for ultimate raw sonic power.
